Workshop - Banki College National Committee of European Organisation for Quality Hungary 8th April 2003

The main aim of the workshop was to let ENBIS and Pro-ENBIS and the possible use of modern statistical methodology in the industry be known for the local practitioners. To give an overview of the activities of Pro ENBIS as well as the most important papers of the 2nd Conference of ENBIS, held in Rimini in 2002. It also served as a preparation for a 3-day workshop, planned in Budapest for 2004.

During the workshop we focused on the economic criteria for control charts, used extensively in our joint work within Pro-ENBIS. The second part was devoted to the ENBIS as a recent organisation that is quickly expanding and which can promote the use of advanced statistical thinking within the business sector of Europe. Unfortunately there are not many Hungarian members at the moment, so kind of an advertisement was also needed.

Some works presented at the 2nd conference of ENBIS were analysed, out of which the evaluation of statistical consulting - Kennet et-al was in the focus of the discussion.

The participants present will do the dissemination indirectly. As there were teachers of the higher education as well as leading quality engineers of some Hungarian companies, we can hope that the suggested approach will be used at certain areas of the business sector as well as in the teaching at universities.

The experience of the workshop will be used when preparing the main event to be held in Budapest in February 2004: where a 3-day workshop will provide more detailed practical knowledge to an even wider audience.
